Congratulations to Mrs. Jill Brohl who earned the superintendent's Game Changer recognition! This is certainly well deserved. 



Please remember that this Friday (2/15) is an early release day for students. Students will be dismissed at 11:05am. 


Our next parent diversity committee meeting will be on February 28th at 6:00pm in the RMS library. All are encouraged to attend. 


According to Common Sense Media, the new apps in the following article are ones you should know about. They are free and your student might be using them already. https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/25/health/common-sense-2019-apps-partner/index.html

 
I'm also including an article on teen vaping that you might find interesting. Please have a conversation with your student regarding the ill effects of vaping. https://childmind.org/article/teen-vaping-what-you-need-to-know/


The Chesterfield County Public Schools Office of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) will be hosting a series of documentary films, free to CCPS families February and March 2019. Click here for more information.


FACE will also be hosting a family workshop series titled IEP's A to Z. For more information and to register click this link: bit.ly/IEPsAtoZClick here for a video with more information. 


February is already on track to be another record breaker for our Trex Challenge!  Our goal for this month is 300 lbs. since this is a short month. We are already at 97 lbs., that leaves 203 lbs in 13 school days. I know we can do it!  Please keep sending in that soft plastic and thanks for all your support.


You put the US in Robious!

2019 - Week of February 4

posted Feb 4, 2019, 5:23 AM by Derek Wasnock



It is National School Counseling Week! Dr. Wynne, Mrs. Farner, Mrs. Smith, and Mrs. Webster go to incredible lengths for all of our young scholars. They are tireless in their commitment in ensuring that all students are successful and much of what they do is behind the scenes. #robioUS is fortunate to have this stellar group of counselors. Be sure to thank them for all that they do. Click here for a brief video.  



February is Black History Month and it is a time when we remember and recognize the important contributions and achievements of African Americans throughout our nation's history. Not only are teachers incorporating activities into their lessons in recognition, but w
e will be reading several Black History facts on the morning announcements each day. RMS will be posting a new Black History Month trivia question everyday this February. Ten lucky scholars will win VIP tickets to the National Museum of African American History and Culture. https://sites.google.com/ccpsnet.net/black-history-month-trivia/home 



Due to the volume of drop off traffic in the morning, the line of vehicles continues to be long. I know that everyone is busy and has places to be, but please keep student safety in mind. Please do not drop students off on Robious Crossing Drive or on the bus loop. Robious Elementary School can be used as an overflow if the drop off line is too long. If you drop off at Robious Elementary School, please have your student walk on the sidewalk along the bus loop to the middle school. If it is a viable option for your family, I encourage students to ride the school bus.  


Congratulations to Mackenzie Sinclair on her performance at Central Regional Orchestra this past weekend. She worked hard on all of the music and did a great job representing Robious.



Robious Middle School is excited to host a family BINGO night on March 7th for all of our students and parents. We will be providing a free hot dog dinner and bingo cards plus prizes for participants. Please sign up on the google for if your family is interested in attending:

Box Tops and Starbucks Drawing
For the month of February, please bring in those Box Tops for our March 1st deadline! Each delivery of Box Tops to the office, if it's one or one hundred, will get a bouquet of Tootsie Pops and a chance to win a Starbucks Gift Card!  Each Box Top earns RMS ten cents so they really add up!  Click here for a list of all the products that carry Box Tops for Education! 


Congratulations to the following students for representing Robious at the 2019 All District Band Event held this past Saturday at Cosby High School:
Sam McCrowell - percussion
Brennan Rusher - trombone
Andrew Kim - clarinet 
They did an amazing job and performed on a beautiful concert with 100 other outstanding 7th and 8th grade students from around our district! 



Robious Middle School will hold an ESL Open House in the school library on February 8, 2019 during the following times:  8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Están cordialmente invitados al “Open House” (temas de relevancia del programa de ESL ) de la Secundaria de Robious  en la biblioteca de la escuela el 8 de febrero de 2019 durante los siguientes horarios: 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. y 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 pm.

Crestwood Elementary is seeking middle school volunteers for their annual Winterfest on February 2. Click here for more information. 


I encourage you to nominate an outstanding RMS educator for an R.E.B. Award - Nominations are now being accepted for the R.E.B. Awards for Teaching Excellence. Parents, students, educators and the community are invited to nominate an outstanding teacher by visiting http://www.tcfrichmond.org/reb. Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 25. The awards program, which is a partnership between The Community Foundation Serving Richmond and Central Virginia and the R.E.B. Foundation, recognizes excellence in public education by awarding cash grants to outstanding public school teachers from the city of Richmond, the counties of Chesterfield, Henrico and Hanover, and the Department of Correctional Education. Since its inception in 1988, the program has awarded $3.5 million to 774 public school instructors as recognition for their outstanding classroom performance. In total, 16 R.E.B. award winners and 14 finalists will receive cash grants totaling $180,800. Eligibility for the award is limited to full-time classroom teachers in grades K-12 who have completed a minimum of three years of full-time service and are employed by Chesterfield County Public Schools, Henrico County Public Schools, Hanover County Public Schools and Richmond City Public Schools.

Trex Challenge - RobioUS families are the best  in the county!  Thanks to you, we have surpassed our 375 pound goal this month. Think about this:  We can squeeze 21 pounds of soft plastic into one 55 gallon plastic bag.  This month we have collected 388 pounds of plastic, which means we have filled 18.5 bags.  This school year we have collected over 1,400 pounds of soft plastic, filling 67 bags. That is literally over half a ton we have kept out of landfills, off the side of highways and out of our water ways.  Our RobioUS  family has made a huge impact.  Please keep sending in that soft plastic!!!


Many thanks to all of our 7th grade families for coming to school and engaging in student led conferences this past Friday. Students articulating how they are progressing and why is a meaningful exercise for our young scholars. 


Robious Middle School will hold an ESL Open House in the school library on February 8, 2019 during the following times:  8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Están cordialmente invitados al “Open House” (temas de relevancia del programa de ESL ) de la Secundaria de Robious  en la biblioteca de la escuela el 8 de febrero de 2019 durante los siguientes horarios: 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. y 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 pm.

Robious Middle School will hold an ESL Open House in the school library on February 8, 2019 during the following times:  8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Están cordialmente invitados al “Open House” (temas de relevancia del programa de ESL ) de la Secundaria de Robious  en la biblioteca de la escuela el 8 de febrero de 2019 durante los siguientes horarios: 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. y 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 pm.



Friday (1/25) is an early-release day for students. Our young scholars will be dismissed at 11:05.  We will not have time for our normal 4-lunch schedule. We will allow students who bring lunch to eat in the classrooms at the end of the school day. Students needing lunch from the cafeteria will be sent by grade level to get a “bag lunch.” The lunch will consist of a chicken sandwich, a fruit, a vegetable, and a milk. Students will return to the classroom to eat with their peers. There will be no vending and no snacks for sale on Friday.
 
Congratulations to Mrs. Kaleigh Hamilton for earning the Superintendent's Game Changer recognition. Mrs. Hamilton is continually going above and beyond for all students and teachers. Well deserved!

Congratulations to all of our classroom Spelling Bee winners and a special congratulations to our over all Spelling Bee winner, 6th grader Kartikeya Goel!

Congratulations to the Raider Winter Guard on their first competition of the season! They earned second place and only missed first by less than 2 points! Way to represent as the first group to perform for the season for the North in the Atlantic Indoor Association circuit!

Congratulations to the RMS Raiderettes dance team! They earned first in Hip Hop and second in Pom categories at an invitational in Stafford, VA this weekend! 

The next RMS PTA meeting will be Tuesday (1/22) at 7:00 in the library. All are welcome. 

Get your yearbook now before it is too late. The deadline is fast approaching and the price increases the longer you wait! Buy your child's book here now!


Dr. Martin Luther King is often quoted, but the above quote is my favorite. It is nice to have a day off from school in recognition of such an important person, but it is even more important to reflect on why he is such an integral person in our nation's history and why his teachings continue to be just as relevant today. 

You put the US in Robious,

The next Parents of IEP/504 Students Meeting will be on January 16, 2019  7-8:30 pm in room 350.

Congratulations to the following students for being selected for the 2019 All District Band:

A special congratulations to Sam McCrowell for not only being selected for All District Band, but All District Chorus as well!


In November, Mrs. Sitison's Algebra classes (honors and C-level) took on the challenge of The Hardest Math Problem Student Contest. This is a contest sponsored by Scholastic that energizes students' perception of math with fun, extra challenging story problems that combine reasoning skills with math. The problem given took the students about a month's time to complete and all responses were submitted by the end of November. Three Robious Middle School students progressed through Challenge #1 level and into the Challenge #2 level (this could result in lucrative prizes which include $5000 into their 529 college plan! Congratulations to Abby Crawford, Yesli Ajanel Moran, and Andrea Lainez Triminio.


Haga clic aquí para el folleto en espanol. Next month our young scholars will be taking the Department of Criminal Justice Services/Virginia Center for School and Campus Safety (DCJS/VCSCS) survey. This survey is a required component of the annual school safety audit which school divisions must submit to the VCSCS according to § 22.1-279.8. B of the Virginia Code. The climate survey is a tool for schools to monitor and improve school climate in order to maintain a safe and orderly school environment conducive to learning. All students will be taking the survey in school. The survey takes approximately 25 minutes to complete and you can click here to access an electronic version of the letter that came home with your student.

2018 - Week of December 17

posted Dec 16, 2018, 4:35 PM by Derek Wasnock

Parents, we continue to experience extremely long lines at the parent drop off in the mornings. We understand that the line gets increasingly longer as the morning progresses and can stretch all the way to Polo Parkway some mornings. We continue to have Chesterfield County Police and the CCPS Safety and Security Department evaluate the traffic pattern, but for now it is simply a matter of volume of vehicles. If it is a viable option for your family, please consider having your young scholar take the bus.  

Our morning announcements are now posted on the school web page every day. You can find them here. 

Trex Challenge
Thank you to everyone who sent in plastic on Friday. We collected 50 pounds on that one day! That brings our total to 120 for the month of December. Our goal is 225 pounds, so PLEASE send in any soft plastic you have this week. Our total for the year is 925 pounds! Our Chick-Fil-A winners will be drawn on Wednesday.

This past weekend, our very own Ms. Giska completed an Ultramarathon in Virginia Beach! This race is 50 kilometers in length! Congratulations Ms. Giska!

I hope you all have an amazing winter break!
You put the US in Robious,
Derek Wasnock, Ed.D.

Hope everyone is enjoying the snow days! I will send out updated information if any of these dates change. Be safe out there!

Chorus winter concert will be on Monday (12/17) at 7:30 pm at James River High School.  

The winter bands concert has been rescheduled for Friday (12/14) - 7:00PM - James River High School.
  

A couple of students are working on a project for Diversity Club and they are asking for student art to create a displayed collage. Click here for more information. 

 
Absence and Dismissal Notes
Please be sure to send a note in with your student for any absences from school. 
For early dismissals, students are asked to bring a note to the attendance office on the day of the early dismissal with the time they will be leaving. This allows us to have your student ready to meet you at the time of dismissal. Students will not be released after 1:45 pm without a note.
For absences and dismissals to be excused, a note, email, or phone call is required to the attendance office. Thank you for your understanding.

2018 - Week of December 3

posted Dec 2, 2018, 6:17 PM by Derek Wasnock


Check out these news stories of our very own Mrs. Zaval. She is the recipient of the National Council for the Social Studies Teacher of the Year!
Click here for a 3 minute CCPS video of Mrs. Zaval.


The week of December 3rd-7th is Inclusive Schools Week. Inclusive Schools Week helps teachers and students discuss how to educate each child successfully. Students will be participating in four lessons during their round table to help them determine what makes them a successful learner. The lessons are a part of the I’m Determined program. I’m Determined is a state initiated program that helps students understand their learning capabilities, as well as learn how to advocate for themselves. The four activities they will be participating in will help them identify their strengths and struggles, preferences and interests and what tools help them as learners. A one-pager that students create during the week will be sent home for parents to see and discuss with students after it’s completed!


Our 504/IEP Parent Group is an incredible resource for families. Click here for more information.


November was a good month for the Trex Challenge collection of soft plastic. Although we did not reach our 325 pound goal, we did collect 300 pounds. To date, we have collected over 850 pounds since the start of school! This month our goal is 275 pounds. December is a short month, however I know together we can reach this goal. So, dig into your pantries and closets, find that soft plastic and send it in!!! Thank you for all you do to support our students and all the programs we as a
community are involved in.


For all students who are taking a word language: Students are expected to be present for all exams and are expected to sit for exams on the dates/day scheduled. Students must make prior arrangements with Dr. Wasnock if they are aware they will miss an exam day. If a student is absent on the day of an exam, a parent must contact the school at 804-378-2510 and speak with Dr. Wasnock for approval for exam make up arrangements. Exam credit for make up exams will be based upon the reason for the student's absence and the student's attendance record for the class. Failure to contact a school administrator before the administration of an exam will result in a grade of 20% on the exam.


I wanted to share an exciting opportunity that is happening over winter break here at Robious Middle. Coach Berry, through Kids Fit & Fun is holding its annual Holiday Basketball Clinic. The clinic will be held December 26, 27 and 28 in the Robious gymnasium from 9am to 2pm. The clinic is open for any boy or girl in grades 3rd through 8th. Click here for an application. Please contact Coach Berry with any questions ( jeff_berry@ccpsnet.net ).  Thanks!


Green Club Tip of the Week: Refuse single use plastic forks, knives, spoons, and straws when you get takeout to eat at home.  Instead, use the utensils you have at home and drink without a straw! Did you know the average useful lifetime of plastics is 12 minutes? Did you know that plastics never biodegrade? Help stop plastics from filling our landfills and oceans by refusing single use plastic whenever possible.


Parents, would you like an evening to go shopping or a dinner out? James River High School is hosting a one night basketball camp on Saturday, December 8th from 4:00-8:00 PM. Dinner is included. Email andrew_blazar@ccpsnet.net to reserve a spot. Sibling discounts available. Click here for the information flyer.


Here is a message from two James River High School leadership students:
Hello Robious students and parents,
Our names are McKenzie Elim and Abby Rieck, and we are students in the Center for Leadership and International Relations at James River High School. As seniors in a leadership-focused specialty center, we have the opportunity to initiate a service project that benefits our community. For the first phase of our Capstone Project, we are organizing a book drive during the holiday season so that local children may have access to age-appropriate reading material outside of the classroom. From November 26 - December 19, we are collecting new and gently-used books, particularly those at the K-5 reading levels. We will then donate the books we collect to the Children’s Museum of Richmond Book Bank and students involved in the second phase of our Capstone Project: a ten-week after-school tutoring and mentoring program at Crestwood Elementary, a local Title I school.
Striving to expand our book drive into a community-wide initiative, we have partnered with Robious Middle School, hoping that its students may also have books to share. Both of us would greatly appreciate if every Robious family scavenged through their book shelves and selected some books to share with children who are not fortunate enough to have their own book collections. A collection bin will be placed in Robious Middle's front office for book drop-offs. Thank you for your support! Click here for the flyer.
